Evelyn Sharma Declines ‘Bigg Boss 8’

The eighth season of popular reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ will be hitting the air in the near future.  Already speculation has started about the participants of the new season. There is also speculation about Salman Khan being replaced by none other than Shahrukh Khan as host.

While participating in ‘Bigg Boss’ is financially lucrative and is a good exposure, it looks like not everyone is convinced by it. Model turned actress Evelyn Sharma has received offer to enter the ‘Bigg Boss’ thrice including the upcoming season 8. But she has declined the offer every time.While she thinks that the show is among the most entertaining on Indian television, she has also explained why she cannot be a part of it. Evelyn said, "I think 'Bigg Boss' is the most entertaining show on Indian television. However, I'm claustrophobic and I can't be stuck in one house for so long. Plus, my new film start shooting soon so my dates too were becoming an issue."

Evelyn is half Indian and half German by birth. She was born in Germany. Later she studied and worked as a model in the United Kingdom. Her acting career started in 2006 with a small role in the British film ‘Turn Left’. Her Bollywood debut happened in 2012 with the film ‘From Sydney With Love’. Most recently she was seen in the film ‘Yaariyan’. Although the film was panned by critics, Evelyn caught everyone’s eye with her gorgeous looks.

 Though she was seen in a bikini in the film, she was apparently not ready to bare it all even if it is a major role. Earlier in June she was offered a plum role in a British film but declined it because the role needed on screen nudity. A source close to her had informed, "A lead role in a high flying British drama would have been quite a meaty addition to her career, but the character was a little too bold for her and after some thought, she decided to give it a pass as it wasn't subtle or suggestive nudity."   

Apart from acting, Evelyn also made her singing debut with an international project recently. The song is titled ‘Something Beautiful’ and the album that contains the song is due for release in August. She has worked with Indo-American rapper, Brooklyn Shanti in the album. Evelyn has said in a statement, "I'm very excited as singing is something I have always been passionate about. I would sing casually all the time but never imagined actually having to work on a collaboration for an international album."
